2012 Nissan Titan
2012 Nissan Titan
The Titan is Japan's take on the full-size American truck, and it matches its competitors from Detroit's Big Three in size, power, and heft. Whereas domestic full-size trucks are available in a wide assortment of configurations, the Titan keeps things simple: there is one engine, a beefy 5.6-liter V-8, and it mates to a five-speed automatic transmission. Body choices are limited to the four-door crew cab and the King Cab, which has hinged rear half-doors, and there are three possible lengths for the Titan's bed. We think the Titan is one of the few big pickups that doesn't drive like one: the 317-hp V-8 provides muscular acceleration, and the steering has better feedback than what you'd find in some sedans. The Titan's ride is remarkably comfortable and planted over lumpy roads. At the same time, the Titan is plenty capable, with a maximum tow rating of 9500 pounds and an array of tie-downs, storage compartments, and towing gear available. The interior is roomy, nicely laid out, and filled with storage cubbies and cupholders. The front passenger seat folds flat to provide an additional work surface, and the center console can even hold hanging file folders. The Nissan Titan delivers on all the primary reasons for which buyers select full-size trucks: size, power, utility, and capability. Unfortunately, all those qualities haven't translated to sales, as Nissan has been unable to gain much of a toehold in the lucrative full-size pickup market. Currently, Nissan sells only one Titan for every twenty-seven F-series pickups sold by Ford.

The Nissan Titan might not get any significant upgrades for another few years, but we caught a few shots of what appears to be a 2013-model-year model testing on a Michigan highway and wearing a couple of subtle tweaks.
2011 Nissan Titan Front Three Quarter
The aging Nissan Titan won’t be updated for several more years due to problems caused by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami in Japan. According to Automotive News, Nissan will push back the launch of its new full-size pickup truck until the 2014 model year.

Before it plunged headfirst into bankruptcy, Chrysler was working on deals with several automakers in the hopes of trading platforms and technologies. One of those automakers was Nissan, who hoped to gain a full-size truck platform in exchange from letting Chrysler use its Versa. Now that Chrysler has exited bankruptcy, Nissan says it still wants its next-generation large pickup to be based on the Dodge Ram. Since it left bankruptcy and came under the control of Italy's Fiat, however, it hasn't been clear who's in charge of what at Chrysler.
